“they” simply want your vote. “they” want the power and they are not going to get it without the votes.
They do not know that violence will result in people who think of themselves as “normal” and rational joining the “walk away” movement and changing to republicans, or simply voting for the party that is not getting violent.
Rule of thumb that applies universally: No one is so ignorant that beating them will make them informed. There is no one so bad at math that beating them will make them a mathematician. There is no one so stupid that beating them will make them smart. There is no one so dirty that beating them will make them neat and clean. There is no one whose cooking is so bad that beating them will make them cook better. There is no addict so addicted that beating them will make them stop their addiction. There is no one who is so unloving of you that beating them will make them love you. Beating a person will make that person get away from you. Thusly, if the democratic party thinks that violence and thuggery, insanity, breaking shop windows, beating on cars, shouting down, getting in our faces, beating us with clubs, setting police cars on fire, shouting us out of restaurants, and all the other insane attacks will make us vote differently and vote for them, they are wrong. No one wants to vote for that insanity. We will just be MORE determined to vote against that. Many have already sent in their ballot and have already voted. Beating them over the head with a bike lock, or shouting in their faces will not change a vote already mailed in. All of the acting insane acts will not make us want to vote for that.
“they” want votes, but they are going about it the wrong way. Temper tantrums, tears, shouting, setting fires to things, breaking windows, kicking, and acting insane is not a way to get votes.
“Listen, here’s my recommendation. Grab your family, grab your friends, grab your neighbors, and get to the poll, because if not, you are going to have another two or another six years of this craziness,” Michael Cohen said. “So, make sure you vote.”
Whatever you may be feeling today about our country, hold on, stay steady, and know this: the good and decent mass majority of Americans will endure and prevail. Never doubt. It may take time but it will happen. This is our history and our destiny.
A fascist is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends – HENRY WALLACE 1944
The harm was to the Cherokee Nation. Because Elizabeth claimed benefits as a Cherokee, it means that a real Cherokee did not get a benefit. “I’m sorry” is not enough. She needs to provide the worth of her ill-gotten gain to a member of the Cherokee tribes. If she gained college tuition, then she needs to pay the college tuition of a Cherokee student. All she needs to do is even the score with the Cherokee Nation.
When riding a roller coaster in your senior years —- have a pocket that buttons, or zips closed and is secure. Take out your dentures and secure them in this pocket before the ride begins. Most good roller coasters will make you scream and will turn you upside down. Some even end by splashing you through water. Some will take your picture on the craziest part. You do not want to lose your teeth.
I am not perfect. I know I often speak as if I think I am, but I am certainly not. I strive for perfection, but have fallen into every manner of sin. Error. You don’t have to be a legalist to ‘have a zeal for God,
Perfectionist thinking is stressful. Keep adding a 0 to the day(s) and ask “does it matter” and eventually the answer will be no. A day. Sometimes 10 days. Rarely, but possible 100 days. Unless you’re in some long, drawn out thing, doubtful 1,000 days. A prison sentence, yeah Much else, no 10,000 days. Very. Very few things. 100,000 days. One thing out of billions 1,000,000 days. Unless you’re *really* young, or you’re some political figure that forever changed the landscape of existence, no. 10,000,000 days. Nothing done can possibly matter over 27,000 years later
